Below you can find a list of the more common crypto algorithms with some example coins that use them along with a link to windows binary for a miner for the respective algorithm. This way you can quickly get to the GPU miner for AMD or Nvidia GPUs that you would need to use for a specific crypto algorithms, especially if you have not yet mined a coin based on that algorithm. There are of course some more coins that use other specific algorithms and may not be mineable with the GPU miners listed below.

cgminer-3-7-2-blake-256-support

We now have a merged mining pools for Blake-256 based crypto coins, currently supporting merged mining of Blakecoin and Photon, but for mining these you need a special version of cgminer with support for the algorithm being used by them. The Blake-256 algorithm hashrate is about 3x faster than what you are getting from the same hardware mining for Bitcoin. So for example with a Radeon R9 280X you can expect to get a hashrate of about 2-2.5 GH/s or more when mining Blackecoin (BLC) or other Blake-256-based crypto currencies such as Photon (PHO) for example. You cannot use the standard cgminer for mining Blake-256 crypto coins, you need to use a special version of cgminer with support for this algorithm (source) and you can download the windows version of cgminer 3.7.2 for Blake-256 mining below. Note that this version of cgminer is compiled with support for Blake-256 mining alone, you cannot mine other coins using different algorithms with it.

You can download cgminer 3.7.2 with Blake-256 Support for Windows OS here…
